there is not really a right or wrong.but i believe to be like jesus is what we all should be. And jesus was placed in a tomb. But its very expensive. And cremation is the cheapest way to go if money is a problem.and buried in the ground they drain your blood and put crap back in to preserve the body.some people fear there body being burned.really it is your choice.the dead do not suffer the living.its not gonna help the dead how u prepare his body.me personally i would choose a tomb if my family could pay for it.if not id choose cremation so not to incur any finacial hardship for them to pay for.even in death i think of my family

The body is just a vessel that carries your spirit Once you die and the spirit leaves all that is left is an empty shell that no longer has meaning or use.

I don't believe there is a right or wrong choice. I personally want to be cremated. I have asked my family to spread my ashes some place they have always wanted to go but never got around to it. That way they have a chance to do something they always dreamed to do because of my wishes. I might be dead but want to continue bringing my family joy when I am gone.

Our vessels belong in soil. We can be of benefit to the environment best in soil. I don't know when cremation started but I bet it didnt exist in early days. If money's your worry then minimize costs of your funeral and burial. I wouldn't want to be cremated!!!

Do tell how your vessel will benefit the environment filled with chemicals and buried in metal?

I asked because I am struggling with the decision I made and the request and instructions and wishes I followed. I just wanted to hear other peoples opinions or thoughts and heard alot of good ones so I don't think it's a dumb thing to ask and if you are ever put in my position and walk in my shoes then maybe you wouldn't think it's so dumb and I would feel for you because it sucks to be inside my head right now and for the last 2yrs. I beleive in kind words of advise or thought from people and not medicine in pill form from a head shrink to get through rough times. Have a nice day.

Hope it gets easier for you. I'm a traditionalist that's why I wouldn't want to be cremated. I think traditional resting place makes sense.

There is nothing wrong with cremation. They did it in the biblical times because of the rock. it was hard to dig graves. I also struggled with this and did research. You may now just let it go.

Im getting creamated..i don't see the point in taking up space among other dead ppl. Im curious ..anyone know how much of the planet is taken up by cemetery ? Seems like a waste. Not many ppl come to visit your little tombstone when your gone..but i guess to each his own. Lite a match up when i die..old Indian style

It really depends on your faith. Some religions practice cremation. I am sure some believe the body should remain whole, although I do not know of any.

What I can tell you is that with the internet, there are a TON of answers out there. Google "cremation and the bible", you will get opinions who study the bible more than people on this forum do.

And btw...I am an atheist who does plan on being cremated. I would rather think of my ashes spread than the alternative.
